ABSTRACT
A speech is presented by Richard Lugar, U.S. Senator from Indiana, delivered on the floor of the Senate on June 25, 2007. He calls for a rethinking of U.S. strategy in Iraq, which he says has lost touch with true national security interests. He questions the policy in place, but also says U.S. interests would not be served by a hasty withdrawal motivated by domestic partisan political concerns. He calls for downsizing U.S. troops in Iraq and giving diplomatic and economic options a larger role.
